Treeing Walker

by Doris Donnerman
(last updated August 17, 2009)

This is another strain of coon hound which is said to have been developed from certain individual Walker Hounds which showed especial proficiency in trailing and treeing raccoons. Through training and constant use in night hunting, the treeing instinct has been developed in a high degree and the strain has become a specialist in coon hunting. They can be easily trained to trail any species of ground furred game. In appearance they have no characteristics which distinguish them from the Walker Foxhound.
